Sandra Okunzuwa, the popular Nollywood actress, has talked about her life. She shared a painful experience that made her despise men for a long time. In a recent interview with The Sun, the screen diva discussed her traumatic experiences with men and how she overcame the trauma. According to her, she was s*xually abused as a child, and when she confronted her abuser as a grown woman, she was stigmatised.

She said the experience made her hate men for a while, but she has now healed and moved on. “S*xually abused as a kid? Yes. Mental health victim? Yes. In the society we live in, people don’t talk about mental health issues; they expect you to visit your pastor and you will be alright. As an actor, it is not easy. First, you will have to embody the life of different characters and personalities, the good, the bad and the terrible.

"Despite what you are going through personally, you have to wear a smile and keep entertaining people because that is what people expect from you. I think there should be a special therapist for entertainers, because it is not easy. Giving out joy to people and lacking where to fill up from. Most people are broken; they’re carrying about baggage from the past, if you don’t talk about it so you can get help, you will keep carrying it about until it destroys you. By sharing your problems with your partner, you can get help.

"Lastly, being traumatized isn’t a spiritual issue; it is a mental issue that needs a therapist. I will get married to my perfect partner someday. Before, it (the s*xual abuse) kind of made me resent men, but I have healed from it and moved on. I am a lot better now.”
She said.
